My latest adventures.......



Well I started my all out fitness goals. I really have always wanted to try Yoga and I also was really excited to start tennis up again and kick boxing. I also want to learn how to golf this summer and continue to practice my rock climbing adventures. So as most of you know I never have been good at going half way on something. Fitness is of course no exception! The other day I began with a feverish excitement at all I am going to do. I started off at the gym doing my stomach crunches, then lunges. After that I headed to the park for an hour of roller blading. I may have mentioned to many of you that I love roller blading at liberty park because it is a good ride, and extremely flat. However, I removed my brakes from my roller blades, so I really have to time getting off the sidewalk onto the ramp perfectly. So I was ending my last lap as a SUV was approaching I decided to increase my speed so that I could make it down and to my car. I guess I didn't really think my approach plan out very clearly I timed it to miss the SUV perfectly.....but I didn't realize that I was going way to fast as I approached my car I decided that I would just keep going towards it, and I would put out my arms to stop myself. Well I definitely made contact! I slammed so hard into the side of my car that I bounced off and landed turtle style on my tooshi! I was a little banged up, but nothing too bad. I had a good laugh at my lack of grace or anything close to skill. But don't think that I let that stop me! I went back to the gym with a friend, and we did a 15 minute super ab class, followed by an hour of yoga! I really didn't think much of it, except that when I woke up yesterday I felt like my body was no longer composed of various muscle groups, but every inch felt like tightly wound rubber bands. But as they say...no pain no gain right?^^
